The Guardian has launched a new crowd sourced news platform called the ‘GuardianWitness’ which basically forms the mechanic to create Citizen Journalists, via a new smartphone app. The App allows wanna-be-journalists or every day people to submit interesting stories, or in times of need, The Guardian will issue ‘Assignments’ to gather additional photos and video content for bigger stories that are happening in real time…

This is a much better way to invite people to participate in creating news than what’s been around for the last few years (tweet us, email us .etc) so I’d expect this to drive a new wave of participation for The Guardian. Very cool. Hands up if you’d get involved in this?
